The Lack of Harmony Between Humans and Mother Earth

This photo captures a hot and humid afternoon at Chowpatty Beach in Mumbai, India.  A crowd of locals had gathered around the water for Ganesh Visarjan, a ceremony which takes place on the tenth and final day of the annual Ganesh celebrations (Ganesh Chaturthi).
The scene pictured includes visual contrasts between mankind and nature; these serve to symbolize the lack of harmony between ourselves and Mother Earth.  Human beings pretend to coincide with the natural world but, in actuality, we exist against it.
